Static IP Routing on Smart hub


[link to this post]
 
Hi,
I dont know if this is the right section, but here goes.
I need to set up Static IP Routing in order to access my work computer system.
I have searched for information on how to do this on the BT Smart hub without success.
I contacted BT tech support, who told me that it can be done, but they would not help me do it.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to set up a static routing table on the smart hub?

Thanks for any help

Can you define exactly what you are trying to achieve? Do you mean static routing on the internal network or port forwarding or a public static IP?

I would be a little surprised if you need internal static routing tables to get to an external work system.

I neither understand what you mean by Static IP Routing.

You probably need to access your work computer system over a VPN which your work should provide the means. That's usually how most firms do it.

You can't have it on BT Homehub. You'll need a 'proper' router to do this.

I think the better option is for your company to give you a Laptop for working remotely this is what we do for people needing to work away from the office

Choose a job you love, and you will never work again.

No idea what you are trying to do.

Your firm should be using a VPN and typically this will connect via a corporate issued device. If you are using a personal device and trying to connect it into the corp environment I would not recommend this for a whole bunch of security reasons.

No static routing is required to work from home over a VPN.

The answer has already been given. If it can't be done on the smart hub then a different router which can do it will be required to replace the smart hub.

The answer to what the question is hasn't yet been given.

I have a feeling that what is required is a static IP as the company may be locking remote access down to specific IP source addresses. If that is the case then BT consumer don't provide static IPs. Changing routers would make no difference to that.

If it really is an internal static route required on the router then I would be interested as to why - I can't off the top of my head think why this would be required to access an external source.
